Christopher John Dabner 1952 — 2014

Christopher John Dabner

Christopher John Dabner of Kamloops, BC, passed away on April 25, 2014 at the age of 61.  He is survived by his loving wife, Lynda Dabner; mother, Hilda Dabner; sons, Jamie Dabner (Tera) & Samuel Dabner (Amy); grandchildren, Kennedy and Krew; brother, Phil Dabner;  mother-in-law, Ruth Stirling;  nephew, Jason Dabner (Erika); grand nieces, Zoe and Ava; sister-in-law, Kathie Cross (Woody). Chris also leaves his family in Plymouth, Devon, England and Malton, Yorkshire, England.  Chris was predeceased by his father, Kenneth Samuel Dabner.

Chris was born in Plymouth on December 03, 1952.  He moved to Canada with his family and attended high school at Norkam, where he made lifelong friends.  Chris and his wife Lynda travelled extensively for a few years before returning to Kamloops.  He was actively involved in the construction industry for years.  Chris built the family cabin at Shuswap Lake with the help of his wife, kids and in-laws Ruth and Peter.  Spending time at ‘the lake’ with family and friends was universally known to be his favourite thing to do.

Chris’s family will host a celebration of life at a later date.  Lynda and her sons would like to say a special thank you to the Kelowna Thoracic Clinic and Dr. Kruger.  Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice.
